    can't open .art files. I dunno why.....

    I associate these .art files with IE and they will not open. I don't get it. Why is this happening? I don't get it.

    Are you sure they're images/sounds etc that IE can open?

    If you associate .sys with IE, it won't open it either... I'm not sure what .art is ...

    If it is indeed an image or whatever, have you tried opening it in another application like Paint Shop Pro? You can download an evaluation version free from http://www.jasc.com

    .art files are a proprietary AOL file format. However, IE does offer Art-file support as an add-on, which will allow it to open them. Also, AOL's main program, waol.exe, can open .art files directly. But I doubt any other graphics program can open them.

    Thanks BFlurie, I'll be looking for a patch. I have too many cool pics saved from my CompuServe days to just let them go.
